Call for creationism in UK schools

Creationism should be taught within the context of religion rather than science, said Dr Underdown. “It is not something that fits within the mainstream of science.”

With so much to be crammed into science lessons, it was not a worthwhile use of time to include lessons about creationism, he argued.
